Techniques and pro- cedures for accomplishing technical dam inspections and making the asso- ciated safety evaluations are described in detail in Recommended Guide- linesfor Safety Inspection of Dams (Chief of Engineers ), Safety Eval- uation of Existing Dams (U.S.

Bureau of Reclamation ), and Guidefor Safety Evaluation and Periodic. The nature of public interaction with dams is changing and guidance is needed to increase public safety around dams.

Public interaction with dams is increasing for several reasons, including lack of awareness of hazards, public interest in “extreme” sports, recreational vehicles improving access, a perceived right of public access to sites, and the remote operation of dams.

Since Augthe State of California has regulated dams to prevent failure, safeguard life, and protect property. The California Water Code entrusts dam safety regulatory power to DWR, Division of Safety of Dams (DSOD). We provide oversight to the design, construction, and maintenance of over 1, jurisdictional sized dams in California.

This Safety of Dams (SOD) Program Handbook conveys standard operating procedures and guidelines intended to achieve the mission of the Program, as discussed in Section It is not intended as a standard of technology for dams; rather, it is intended to guide the overall program.

Summary of Existing Guidelines for Hydrologic Safety of Dams The overriding purpose of this report is to document the available data and to present the state of the practice for evaluating the hydrologic safety of dams, including inventorying current practices used by state and federal agencies.

From earth tectonics and meteorology to risk, responsibility, and the role of government, this comprehensive and detailed book reviews current practices in designing dams to withstand extreme hydrologic and seismic events. Recommendations for action and for further research to improve dam safety evaluations are presented.

Table of Contents. Abstract. Key issues for the seismic safety evaluation of high concrete dams are reviewed. For the pre-feasibility study stage, the conventional seismic design practice is summarized under the framework of the Chinese Specification Safety of dams book Seismic Design of Hydraulic Structures; for the stage of preliminary and final design, some advanced design and research are performed for further seismic.
